Yes, I may try to do that. There are also another couple of serials on my site that IA doesn't have.

I actually have stopped uploading to IA because they publish uploaders' email addresses with every upload, which is very harvestable and very bad. I really love IA, but this burns me up.

By the way, I got that Canadian Mounties serial at

http://www.serialsandsuch.com/

This guy has stuff I have not seen elsewhere and lots of it.

The ones I got were fine, although the size and bitrate could have impressed me more. Anyway, I'm just passing this along as I have not heard this site ever mentioned as a source, and he does have lots and lots of serials.

Yes he does have lots available, and he is a very quick shipper. I checked the chapter files for Black Widow and they are about 125mb mpeg files at 352x240. The other set I got was about the same.

I went there just now and I (duh) couldn't find an email link to click on, so good luck there. See ya

there is a "click on me to get o/s post rates". we have friends in USofA so we can use that address and have them sent on here.

Just a thought, but you could register with an email address for an email account you rarely use. I keep a Yahoo! account for registering at iffy websites just for that purpose.

Yes, that's a way to do it. Because I have 3 websites right now (2 more than I need!), I luckily have thousands of email addresses available.

But that's moving in the wrong direction, I think. Unless IA changes this basic flaw in the system, it is only a matter of time before these email addresses are harvested. Depending on who gets them, many people will find they have to get rid of a long held and cherished email address.

It is flat wrong to expose the email addresses of others. As much as I admire IA for it's many great contributions, I would like some action on this issue. Last year, when this was brought up on the forum, there was finally a reply from someone who seemed in authority here. But it was a non-responsive reply. He's Rupert Martin, and his non-responsive response is here:

As mentioned earlier in this thread, I have a movie related site going up right now. Wouldn't it be great if I had an email list of hard core film junkies like ourselves? Spam Heaven!

Not. I want this poor practice stopped. Guyzilla and Finnobrit both have offered simple solutions to this security gap, but nothing has ever happened.

Oh, well . . .

I remember discussing this last year, and I agreed then and I agree now that leaving our email addresses harvestable is a terrible practice.

Hope you do upload some new serials.
